Well, if you are a SD golfer like me, this is a great deal on a new set of graphite shaft irons from Callaway.

This was Golf DIgest 2012 HOT LIst club( cannot remember gold or silver rating)

I have been tracking this set on Ebay auctions since early 2013, the average price is in the low to mid $300+ shipping. So with BUY-It-Now at $300, I think it is a great deal, no waiting.

If you have a 10% off Ebay coupon from this week, for $270 shipped(YMMV), heck of a set at this price.

My last SD deal on the Srixons Z-star golf balls(my first SD deal actually) went FP, so hope you like this one.

Disclaimer: pls no TC and compare to the $199 set of clubs with putter and bag. Nothing wrong with those, just apples and oranges. Thank youBig Grin FORE

I love Callaway and owned their Diablos for a while (which unfortunately broke and still sold for $10 more than what I paid)... I then picked up a new left over set of Adams Idea A7OS (all hybrid & graphite shafts).
I really liked these and am actually happy that the previous ones were broken...

But to all the newbies here (me included, though I played extensively for a full year and consistently shoot early 80's now) my suggestion would be to buy what you like (cheap) and not get into "show-off" mode. It isn't really necessary although many people actually do it.

The janitor (who never took a lesson) from my work plays with me sometimes and he plays with his old battlesticks (that belonged to his father). He is way better than most of the fools on the course and I once spoke about my new set in front of him. His only words were "the clubs are only as good as the golfer". Sad but surprisingly TRUE!!!!
You went from never playing before to low 80s in a year...Jeez. That is super impressive.

Careful with graphite... they break much easier depending on your swing.

You would have to make a prettttty awful swing into the ground to break one of these. In normal use they really shouldn't break. Guess I have seen people at the driving range break them by hitting a ball with the tip of the shaft accidentally too....now when you throw them - they break MUCH more easily than steel. Trust me.

Well, I'll be honest with you here. My roommate is a golf coach and works at a golf store. So ideally although I never played before, I played 95% of my rounds with him the past year and it just makes a lot of difference playing with someone who knows this stuff very well. (It was like free lessons)

The janitor from my work place was amazing (better than my roomie I would say) and he was just a very resourceful guy who played very well within his limitations. Playing with him improved my game a lot also. He taught me nifty little things like using a 7 instead SW when you're close to a green but it is sloping upwards.... Amazing guy with some really old & rusted clubs. Actually I'm planning to gift him some good irons for his birthday (~$300). Very pleasant guy....

The important thing is that I played 85% of the time at a course very close to my home. It a very popular course but I now know it like the back of my hand. So that helped a lot too...

Then there is the bit about luck anywhere... I just got lucky many times where the ball hit a tree and bounced back very close to the greens... So let me just say it was a combination of things.

But I am definitely happy with my game at this point and am very proud of having a very consistent smooth swing. Although I cheaped out on the clubs (Adams A7OS (all hybrid) full set), it just fit me very well.

Actually my roommate was trying to convince me to buy some Callaway clubs set for $900 Stick Out Tongue But hey I'm a hardcore SD'er and ended up finding a deal on a good set. He was pissed big time that I didn't give him my business (he would've got a promotion and all) but understood that this is the digital age and people will look for good deals. Beside the same Adams A7OS was like ~$680 in his store versus the $300 I paid for everything.

So it was a no-brainer....

Thanks
Maxie

Those Adams are great clubs. I wouldn't say you cheaped out at all. Cheaping out would have been a complete set for $150, but it sounds like you are good enough that clubs will make a difference.

I recommend hybrid sets to everyone I play with. Unless you are breaking 80, you can probably benefit from more hybrids/less irons. Hell - there are tons of pros that don't even have a 3 iron anymore. Hybrids simply work better.

Most new golfers will hit their 3-7 iron about the same distance (with results getting worse as the club # goes lower), so no reason to try to force yourself to try to hit a 3,4 or even 5 iron if you hit all of those clubs about 150 yards. Hybrids are simply easier to hit, have a bigger sweet spot, and are generally better for new golfers.

I have been an avid golfer since I was 12 (I am 26) and I haven't carried a 3 iron in my bag for years.

EDIT: And to bring it back to the thread - I would not recommend these to someone who considers themselves a beginner. I think these are for moderately skilled golfers who can break 90. But - to each his/her own. I also believe that confidence plays a MAJOR role, so if these particular clubs make you much more confident and will get you out playing more often even though you shoot 90s, they would be fine.
